Traveller Interagency Group Support

Local authorities, together with other agencies, support interagency groups to coordinate and improve the delivery of services to members of the traveller community.

Traveller Inter-agency Process

At local level, following recommendations of the 2006 Report of the High Level Group on Traveller Issues, Traveller Inter-Agency Groups (TIGs) were established in each local authority area with a Traveller population involving membership drawn from relevant statutory bodies and the Traveller community. 

The overall purpose of the TIGs is to improve Traveller access to services and to provide more integrated service delivery to achieve it. The Groups comprise membership drawn from relevant statutory bodies and the Traveller community.

Carlow Traveller Inter Agency Support Group (CTIG)

Carlow Traveller Interagency Group works to ensure that the relevant statutory agencies and state supported initiatives involved in providing the full range of services to Travellers focus on improving the integrated practical delivery of such services.

Carlow Traveller Interagency Group is facilitated by the Community Development Section of Carlow County Council with the support of The Department of Justice, Equality and Law Reform.
